Statement from Councillor Andrew Mobbs
"I can confirm that Nick Harrington has resigned from his role as Ward Councillor for Stoneleigh and Cubbington Ward today (Wednesday 17th May) and I also understand that he has resigned from his role as a Councillor on Weston Under Wetherley Parish Council. I believe his resignation to be entirely appropriate. He is, however, still under investigation by the Police who will no doubt update us as soon as they have made their report.
I am very disappointed that his comment was made in the first place and by the reaction it generated towards the district council on social media.
Nick Harrington was not an employee of Warwick District Council and so I would like to add that his attitude and comments are in no way supported by the district council, or are in any way a reflection on the progressive and dedicated staff that work for the council."
Leader, Warwick District Council
